An 18-hole Championship Gary Player Signature Golf Course
The championship golf course at Somabay was designed by the golfing icon that is Gary Player. The South African has firmly established himself one of the greats not just in terms of his playing career but, latterly, in the world of golf course design.
In the mid 1990’s Gary Player was approached to design a course on the Somabay Resort and he duly delivered a truly world class layout which he referred to as the Pebble Beach of Africa based on its proximity to the Red Sea.
The course plays through the desert around the resort with no less than 6 holes positioned on the dramatic Red Sea coastline. Tees, fairways and greens provide a playing oasis as the course meanders around the resorts with constant, breath-taking views of the Red Sea all with the stunning back drop of the mountain landscape.
